The American people are sick of nanny state liberals fucking up the economy.

"In Wisconsin, Republican Tom Tiffany, a state senator endorsed by Trump, easily won a special congressional election Tuesday in the state's heavily conservative, rural 7th Congressional District."


and possibly retaking a seat in California that used to be R anyway... and according to Trump it's a rigged election so I guess the results should be questioned

for the record, the 2018 results in the CA race:

Katie Hill (D) - 54.4% 133,209
Stephen Knight (R) - 45.6% 111,813
Total votes: 245,022

(Hill taking the seat away from incumbent Knight)

the 2020 results are this or minor changes:
Mike Garcia (R) 82,321 56%
Christy Smith (D) 64,671 44%
Total votes: 146,992

(far fewer votes, so who knows what the people really want)

plus it had been an R seat since 1992 if i'm reading the wikipedia right... so a D ever winning was the shocker... this "giving California Republicans a chance to claim a Democratic-held congressional seat in the state for the first time since 1998" in the article is an idiotic thing to say w/o noting it was usually an R seat... more accurate to say Trump was soooo awful, that it got miraculously flipped in 2018, but now returning to its traditional state

shitting on Fox articles is so easy :p

So what exactly in that article do you question tumbleweed?

the narrative that this is surprising & supposedly shows support of Trump... (as clearly was noticed based on superdude thread title)

"...giving California Republicans a chance to claim a Democratic-held congressional seat in the state for the first time since 1998."

"This is the first time in many years that a California Dem seat has flipped back to a Republican."

in video:
"i just want to clear up that i made an error yesterday when i said a Republican had not represented this district since 1998, the -accurate- way to say it is in the whole state of California a Republican has not flipped a Democratic house seat to the GOP since that very year, 1998"

no... the -accurate- way to say it is Republicans held that seat from 1992-2018, his 'correction' is an entirely different (& stupid) notion... (finally flipping a seat is just a symptom of Trump sucking hard & losing the seat to begin with)


and for the hell of it looked up the Wisconsin one:

2020 (todays) the R won 57% to 42%
2018 the R won 60% to 39%
2016 the R won 62% to 38%
2014 the R won 59% to 39%

so, what the fuck is special about tonight? ... a weaker win than usual...

"Trump-backed candidate wins big in Wisconsin" is in the headline suggesting Trump somehow helped pull something off

(again... superdude posting it is proof of their goal & that it was accomplished)

alternate headline:

"With the Help Of A Lesbian Sex Scandal & Low Voter Turnout, Republicans Won Back A California Seat They Had Held For 26 Years (And Only Had Lost In 2018 As Trump Was So Awful), Plus Republicans Won A Seat They Usually Win In Wisconsin By A Slightly Smaller Margin Than Usual"

(plus there was redistricting back in 1992 so maybe the R's would have held it even longer than 26 years)

You had me at lesbian sex scandal.

She looks pretty terrible naked.Still want to see her vagina though and the pics i found had them block that.

57% to 42% is big. Not as big as in the past but still big.
The California thing also true. In California it is a twenty point swing from 2018. So yeah a bit of a surprise in California.
You are seeing facts and imagining propaganda.
